Carlos Rios (he/him)
MEN’S HEALTH SPECIALIST
Carlos Rios is part of the HEARRT team as the Men's Health Specialist and as such, runs the Boys’ Lounge meetings at BAGLY. As a HEARRT team member, Carlos' mission is to provide a more inclusive sex education to LBGTQ+ youth, including STI prevention and risk reduction, assisting the clinic, and being a supportive member of the BAGLY community.
Carlos has been doing social justice work and community organizing for 7 years, working with the Boston community on gentrification issues, youth jobs, and meeting with elected officials to push for a more LBGTQ+ friendly school curriculum, proper sex education, and for equal rights for all Queer individuals and all their identities.
Carlos has been brought to BAGLY like many of our young people, and grew accustomed to our family-like culture, and has worked tirelessly to preserve and tighten the bonds between QTPOC+ youth. Carlos works alongside his peers to ensure BAGLY grows and continues to act as a supportive space for the next incoming generation.
